Easy recipes have been popular on Balancing Motherhood this year. Some, really, really, crazy popular. I’m going to run down the top 10 recipes from the year.
10: Easy Ice Cream Cake
This ice cream cake starts with a store-bought pound cake. It can’t be any easier to make this cake and the combinations are endless.
9. Easter Resurrection Cookies
These Easter resurrection cookies are simple meringue cookies that are no-bake. We make them every year on the evening before Easter morning. It’s a great way to teach the Easter story to kids.
8. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
These chocolate-covered strawberries were a big hit, especially around Valentine’s Day. They’re very easy to make and if you use bright colors it gives a special pop.
7. Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
I made these pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting three ways so they could be used for Halloween or the fall.
6. Pinwheel Sugar Cookies
I love how these pinwheel sugar cookies are popular year after year. What I love the most about them is that you can make any color combinations you choose. Red and green would be great for Christmas, but I love the unique look of the blue and white.
5. Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting
This chocolate sweet potato frosting recipe was a surprise how popular it is. I love this recipe and it’s really delicious! You can’t beat how easy it is to make either – and it only has two, yes, two, ingredients!
4. Maple Bacon Cinnamon Rolls
Now, I knew these maple bacon cinnamon rolls would be popular – what’s not to love? Bacon AND cinnamon rolls?! You have to try it to believe it. And, you can have them baked in 30 minutes!
3. Christmas Bundt Cake
This Christmas bundt cake is a winner because it’s easy to make (see a trend here?) and it’s got a surprise inside. This cakes screams Christmas on the outside, and it wows on the inside with more Christmas colors.
This Instant Pot chicken noodle soup recipe surprised me at its popularity. It’s going CRAZY on the blog still and will soon be number one. The reason it’s so popular? I think it’s because it starts with frozen chicken breasts, which frankly, are a working moms savior. And, readers agree in the comments, the taste is amazing. If you haven’t made this, save this one for a cold or rainy day. It will hit the spot.
1. Cinnamon Donut Holes
Once again, my cinnamon donut holes are number one. The reason? These taste great and are baked instead of fried. You can make these quickly any morning you’ll looking for something
There you have it. The top 10 recipes from the blog this year. I love how all of them are my easy, go-to recipes.
